Captain Israel Davis' son Charles Davis [1750-1829][ my 5th G Grandfather] moved to Davistown,ME [now Liberty] around 1805 presumably after the death of his wife [Elizabeth "Betty"Fowler (1750-1805)]. He had lived in Topsfield the majority of his life and was a farmer there. I have explored many online sources and decided to send an email to the Topsfield Library to see what material they may have there - thinking that a trip there in the spring might be enlightening. I received an email back offering to get information to me via Email [I live in Florida]. So...while looking ar the records there the researcher seemed very convinced that he had responded to the call to arms at Lexington and Concord that famous night! I had printed out the Mass Soldiers and Sailors section of Davis' and had been eliminating the ones that I had no connection to but there were a couple I put question marks by. One was for a listing for a Charles Davis of Ipswich. The researcher stated that the location of his home was very close to the town line of Ipswich so she was pretty sure it was him as there were no others in that area.
Yet another tidbit to submit to the DAR....
